God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Wow 3 days till Thanksgiving for all of my U.S. friends. I have nothing ready and I leave on Friday for MA for Wes's wedding! I'm not ready! I have so much that needs done! I did talk to the owner of the oil change shop I go to and he's going to stay open for me tonight so I can get my oil changed tonight. So tomorrow night I should be able to get my car washed and that portion of my list will be done. I did teach an altered clipboard class last night, and can you believe a scrapbooker and photographer and I didn't have mycamera with me????? I know unbelievable. The girls did a great job with the boards. We did have 2 that didn't turn out perfect because they didn't do everything correctly but that's ok. They know for next time. You have to keep everything apart and put very very thin layers of modge podge on each layer no tape! Not until you are using your embelishments. I got a bunch of pictures cleaned up and converted this weekend and read a full chapter on the photoshop book and actually understood what I was reading. I figure I'll have a ton of pictures after the wedding I'm hoping the photographer will let me take a few pictures with my camera so I have some of the wedding party. I know mine won't be as good at the professional but I should have a few! I hope everyone has an amazing week and wish me luck for being ready for the trip.

Here is one of my favorite layouts from last month :)

i love it too :D ohh and if you talk to the photographer and tell him that you will take pics right after he takes a pic then he shouldn't care. i know that they don't want pics being taken right before he takes pics because of the flash interfering. anyway take lots of pics cuz i want to see the beautiful bride and groom. did your mom ever change her mind?
